We own a substantial number of commercial premises, which are available to lease.
We are aware that many applications for leases on these premises are received from parties looking to accommodate their first business venture or who have little experience of leasing commercial property.
This guide has therefore been produced to provide general guidance both for those embarking on 'first time' business ventures and for existing tenants. The form of this guide has been designed to answer those queries raised most often by prospective or existing tenants.
This guide refers, in general terms to a number of common features, which are likely to be found within our commercial leases.
However, the tenant or prospective tenant is reminded that it is the terms of their specific lease which apply and whilst this site may be used as a general guide, its provision should not be seen to override the terms of each specific lease.
Indeed, this site should not be considered in any way a substitute for independent professional advice and we strongly recommend any party seeking to take on a commercial lease to engage the services of a reputable solicitor or licensed conveyancer.
